About Mullein: In the back corner of Avena's biodynamic garden, near our beehives, lies a magnificent Greek Mullein patch that reseeds itself annually. These six to seven foot tall torches, covered with hundreds of yellow flowers, serve as a Mecca to the bustling bee population. Avena's gardeners are found, in the early morning hours of July, singing and collecting many pounds of the delicate Mullein flowers and the soft leaves of the first year plants. These leaves are immediately tinctured in organic alcohol and the flowers infused in organic olive oil (see Ear Oil drops).
